Lake area college students who attend the University of Missouri in Columbia now know when they’ll return to in-person classes.

The University making the decision Wednesday to start classes on August 24th.

It falls in line with Columbia College’s Campuses across the state, including here in Osage Beach, which are also scheduled to start on the 24th.

Officials at Mizzou say there are a few changes once students return, including preparing for a “New Normal” which includes health monitoring, social distancing and other precautions to be announced at a later date.
